(CNN) – The polls are too close for CNN to project a winner in six states, including the often-critical battleground of Ohio.

CNN is not currently projecting whether Republican John McCain or Democrat Barack Obama will win Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, Virginia or West Virginia.

    If Obama looses this thing it proves that there are just as many racist whites in this country as I always suspected. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. These people will have to live with the fact that they elected a bad economy and George Bush for a third term.

    CNN editor, we know you're busy with this election's news, but please check your spelling. The title should read, "Polls too close to call......"

    I love the fact that traditionally Republican states are "too close to call". Even if Obama doesn't win said states, the fact that HE caused them to be TCTC says it all. GO OBAMA! from a non-racist never raised that way Texan!

    I'm seriously worried. Why in the heck is John McCain up in the polls? I know the earlier polls that were taken don't matter but still! What's going to happen? Its all up in the air. I hope Obama wins, I really do!

    The fact that some of these states are too close to call at this time is a VERY good sign for Obama.

    Do you think your projections have any effect on the Western states that have polls still open?

    Or, shockingly, it means they disagree with Obama's policies.

    Wow, only 4 comments and an Obama supported already pulled the race card. Gotta love that even if someone doesn't vote for Obama because we disagree with his policies, its not *actually* because of that, its because we're racist.

    You should be ashamed of yourself. Racism still exists in places in this country only because people on BOTH sides refuse to let go.

    shouldn't that read "too close to call"? I suppose CNN doesn't have time to get things right – they just have to be first.

    If Obama Wins it proves that the Democrats are as corrupt as I have always suspected

    Could me just stop with all the racist crap? It isn't going to do us any good right now. Anyways, here's hoping Obama does win.

    So if an African-American votes for the African-American candidate it is because they believe in the policies of the individual but if a white voter votes for the white candidate it is because he is a racist?
